A terrified man slammed his front door shut after a dark ghost-like figure supposedly bolted through his garden, with the chilling moment caught in a Facebook Live stream.
The man, recording from his home in Bradenton, Florida, US, narrates to the camera that he has just seen something freaky in his garden and carefully pulls open his door to take another look.
“That’s my backyard, I’m zooming in,” he says.
Pointing the camera outside into the darkness, he shows a long stretch of grass and a wooden fence, with the scene looking completely devoid of anything paranormal.
He says: “This is the thing, this is the exact spot where –”
Suddenly, there’s a blur of movement, and a dark, shadowy figure streaks through the garden.
“Oh f***”, the man shouts, then slams the door shut.
The terrifying video was said to be recorded on June 9 and was shared by the paranormal YouTube channel Disclose Screen The Grimreefar, where it sparked a debate about what the mysterious figure could be.
A viewer wrote: “There’s something real there for sure. Doesn’t even look human.
“Respect to this dude for knowing when it’s time to shut the damn door.”
Another mused: “This could be a cloaked Sasquatch…”
Five other commentators reckoned it was a so-called cryptid known as “dogman”.
Meanwhile, someone else advised: “Go to that exact spot with containers, sterile jars to cut grass growing where that fast walker walked.
“Get DNA from that being. Expensive, you bet. But what if you get DNA from an alien?”
This comes after hotel staff shared footage of a creepy “ghost” darting through closed elevator doors.
According to conspiracy theorists, the blurry shape is an evil spirit pretending to be a human child.
In another spooky encounter, a man’s dog starts barking moments before a ghostly figure in a cape materialises.
